Cori is one of those people who does it all, and does it with a smile! We are so glad to have her as part of our team. She started with Mt. Beautiful USA in January of 2011.
Cori is a San Francisco Bay Area native and her diverse 25-year background in accounting includes work in the construction, healthcare, property management, and pharmaceutical industries. She also spent a few years as the assistant to the finance director at Marine World Africa USA (now Six Flags Discovery Kingdom). In the 10 years prior to joining Mt. Beautiful USA, Cori started and operated a number of businesses, including a paint-your-own pottery studio, a foil imprinting business, and a private bookkeeping service.
